Open bid invitation for new walk-in crisis center

Maryland

The Washington County Health Department has an open bid invitation for a new stabilization and walk-in crisis center.

Proposals are due by May 24 at 10 a.m. and if you’re unsure about what exactly the health department is looking for there will be a pre-bid conference on April 29th.

According to the Behavioral Health Department Director Vicki Sterling, this will be Washington County’s first crisis center.

“It isn’t going to put a strain on our hospital system and it’s supposed to take a strain off of the emergency medical services. Once they come here they know it’s a safe place and instead of calling 911 they may be able to walk in by themselves,” Sterling said.
